2011 BMW 135i Coupe

The 2011 BMW 135i Coupe is an authentic performance coupe that draws inspiration from the iconic BMW 2002 model of some 40 years ago. As perhaps the next BMW legend, the 2011 135i Coupe represents the core BMW philosophies of pure performance, compact dimensions, and premium design. By combining sporty rear-wheel-drive dynamics, agile handling, powerful engines and seating for four, the 2011 135i Coupe continues to reinvent the niche that the legendary BMW 2002 created.

For the 2011 model year, the BMW 135i Coupe develops further as one of the most desirable Ultimate Driving Machines in the business.

The big news for 2011 is that the 2011 BMW 135i features BMW's newest, 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. Equipped with a single, twin-scroll turbocharger and BMW's revolutionary Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology, the engine produces the same 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque as its predecessor, but now reaches peak torque as low as 1,200 rpm, which is 200 rpm earlier than the 2010 model. With High Precision direct gasoline injectors, optimum performance and fuel efficiency are achieved with even faster engine response across the entire engine speed range. For the 135i Coupe, acceleration from 0-60 mph is accomplished with the standard 6-speed manual transmission in 5.1 seconds.

Also for the 2011 model year, the 135i can be equipped with BMW's 7-speed Double Clutch Transmission (DCT), as featured on the BMW Z4 Roadster. The DCT option replaces the Steptronic automatic transmission option on 135i models. Equipped with DCT, the 135i Coupe will accomplish the 0-60 mph sprint in a scorching 5.0 seconds.

Handsome Looks

The 2011 135i Coupe combines unique, dynamic and unmistakable design elements with a powerful and muscular body. The greenhouse with its characteristic "Hofmeister kink" is moved rearward and offers a particularly nimble look with its long hood. The short overhangs, long wheelbase and large frameless doors sit on a body with a striking shoulder line for a modern interpretation of BMW's characteristic look. An M Aerodynamic Kit is standard.

The 135i boasts aggressive rear end styling. A lip spoiler provides greater downforce on the rear end at high speeds.

The individual sections within the L-shaped rear taillights give the vehicle a lower, sportier look. Horizontal lights integrated in the rear light clusters offer a homogeneous lighting effect with the help of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). This light design, as found on other BMW models, makes the BMW 135i Coupe stand out at night. Also, the Adaptive Brake Lights, which operate in two stages relative to brake application force, are yet another feature typical of BMW with the benefit of added safety.

The standard Adaptive Xenon headlights complete with integrated Cornering Lights make driving in the dark safer than ever. The daytime running lights function in typical BMW style with two corona rings on each headlight unit enhances the perception of the car under normal and "murky" light conditions.
